Meyer Sound has introduced the USW-210P Compact Narrow Subwoofer, a self-powered loudspeaker providing robust forceful low-frequency reproduction in a slender form factor that is ideally suited to space-restricted installations or very small performance stages. The dual 10-inch driver configuration produces greater output than typical single 12-inch designs, making the USW-210P a preferred alternative wherever convincing bass power must be combined with minimal cabinet width and depth.
“We created it for a customer who wanted superior, full-range music reproduction in retail outlets,” says Pablo Espinosa, Meyer Sound’s vice president & chief loudspeaker designer. “Because their architect and interior designer had limited the dimensions allowed for loudspeakers, we made USW-210P to fit the space. It exceeded all performance expectations and we decided to make it available in our product line.”
The USW-210P has an operating frequency range of 30 Hz to 140 Hz with a conservatively rated linear peak SPL of 126 dB free field at 1 m using pink noise. The long, slender bass reflex cabinet employs the same port design as Meyer Sound’s flagship 1100-LFC low frequency control element for high efficiency and low port distortion. Cabinet dimensions are 41.33 inches (1,049.78 mm) high, 12.0 inches (304.8 mm) wide and 12.0 inches (304.8 mm) deep. A slanted connector panel allows mounting flush to a wall surface with cables connected. Weight is 56.0 lbs (24.6 kg).
The USW-210P cabinet houses a two channel Class D power amplifier with dedicated onboard processing including crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction. The built-in crossover accepts full-range signals, facilitating daisy-chain system configurations for signal distribution, and eliminating the need for external crossovers in smaller systems. The Intelligent AC power supply provides automatic voltage selection, EMI filtering, soft current turn-on, and surge suppression.
The optional RMS remote monitoring system module provides comprehensive monitoring of loudspeaker parameters from a Mac or Windows-based computer running Compasscontrol software via the RMServer interface. Optional XLR 5-pin connectors allow the use of composite cables for carrying both balanced audio and RMS signals.
The USW-210P cabinet is constructed of premium birch plywood and is coated with a durable, black textured finish. A stamped steel grille protects the drivers. Options include Meyer Sound weather protection and custom color finishes for specific cosmetic requirements.
The USW-210P is supplied standard with M8 mounting points at top and bottom. In addition to horizontal placement, the USW-210P also may be mounted free-standing in a vertical orientation (connectors at top or bottom) using an optional aluminum base plate. A U-bracket for wall or ceiling mounting also is available as an option.
The versatile USW-210P integrates easily with Meyer Sound full-range loudspeaker systems, including CAL and UltraSeries loudspeakers. Applications include retail and hospitality installations, theatrical sound reinforcement, houses of worship, conference rooms, high-end home theatre and corporate AV systems.
